Since opening its doors in 1963, the Polynesian Culture Center, on the beautiful north east side of Oahu, has grown to become one of Oahu’s most popular tourist destinations.
As both a theme park and “living” museum, the Polynesian Cultural Center gives visitors a glimpse into the rich cultural history and lifestyle of Polynesia. Featuring village replicas from each of the major Polynesian cultures, visitors are able to experience and learn about cultures ranging from Hawaiian to Aotearoan through hourly performances and demonstrations. Take a guided tour of all 7 Polynesian villages on an interactive canoe ride through the park’s lagoon, or treat yourself to an educational movie experience at Hawaii’s only true IMAX Theater.
After an exciting day of learning and fun, head over to the park’s signature Ali’i Luau, a traditional Hawaiian feast fit for a King. Partake in traditional Polynesian and island cuisine, which includes roasted pig, slow cooked in an imu and unveiled in glorious fashion prior to the meal, poi and a selection of delectable island deserts.
When the feast is over and your bellies are full, head over to the main amphitheater to see Hā–Breath of Life. The multicultural Polynesian show tells the symbolic story of Mana and his beloved Lani through traditional Polynesian dance, music, and spectacular special effects.
Experience the magic and beauty of Polynesia at the Polynesian Cultural Center on your next trip to Oahu.
